AboutThe Hershey Youth Program was offered on a state-wide level in West Virginia in 1976, became a 10-state regional event in 1977, and offered nationally across the United States in 1978. Participants from Ontario first entered the first North American Final in 1996. This program is backed by Athletics Canada here.

WhyTo promote physical fitness, participation, friendship, and sportsmanship.

Where: Meets are held in all areas of Canada and the United States. Provincial/State finalists are eligible for selection to Regional Teams. To ensure fair representation from all regions, a minimum of 5 and no more than 25 finalists are selected from each regional grouping to be part of the Regional Team attending the North American Final at Henry Hershey Field in Hershey, Pennsylvania.
